Coming August 15, 2019
Grammy Award-winning pianist Landon Jeffers is at the height of his career when doctors discover a malignant brain tumor and give him only a few years to live. Desperate, he turns to a so-called miracle worker and agrees to the insertion of a medicinal brain implant. He feels better than he has in years…until he wakes one morning with blood on his clothes but no memory of what happened.
On the run for a crime he doesn’t remember committing, Landon, with his mom and his high school sweetheart, uncovers a mind-blowing conspiracy and begins remembering details of a grisly crime he has long forgotten. As his brain unlocks repressed boyhood memories of a school shooting, he realizes his past holds the key to his future survival in a deadly cat-and-mouse game that threatens everything—and everyone—he holds dear.

“With Kill Order, Blumer delivers another high-concept, high-stakes thriller. With an expansive cast and an intricate plot, readers will find themselves on a relentless ride that races forward to the final page. Fans of Dean Koontz’s thrillers will like this novel. But Kill Order offers even more: a look into responsibility and guilt, culpability and fear.”
—Aaron Gansky, author of The Bargain, The Hand of Adonai Series, Who is Harrison Sawyer?, Heart’s Song, and Firsts in Fiction
“Adam Blumer has created a story that parallels Stephen King and Ted Dekker’s offerings with his own unique voice. Kill Zone’s inspiration thread is the added spice that makes this thriller unique and satisfying. Blumer’s what-if idea is well-researched, and the intrigue and raced for your life moments are well-executed.”
—Multi-award-winning author Cindy Ervin Huff
“Already troubled by suspicious blank periods in his childhood memories, Landon Jeffers finds evidence he may be committing violent crimes that he doesn’t remember. It’s as if something outside of himself were taking control . . . . From this premise, Adam Blumer develops one of the premier suspense novels of our time. It’s a page-turner you won’t want to put down till you’ve devoured the last sentence.”
